General Haulage & Distribution

General Transport • Distribution • Express Delivery • Warehousing Facilities

We're well known for our heavy transport operations but our general haulage roots are still firmly in the ground. We've been providing transport distribution, express delivery and warehousing facilities since 1928, and as a sustainable family run business we pride ourselves on being able to offer a knowledgeable, friendly and efficient delivery service throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.



Our dedicated fleet of general haulage vehicles frequently carry out daily, weekly and monthly delivery contracts across the UK and Europe as well as one off distribution services and rapid response express delivery.  Stationed across our Halifax, Goole and Grangemouth Depots, our general haulage fleet includes rigid flat bed vehicles from 22-28', rigid 22' curtain sided vehicles with tail lift, 45' flats including twist lock and goal post trailers and 45' curtain siders including retracting roof Euroliners.  All our depots feature storage and warehousing facilities providing a cargo handling service and allowing us to quickly respond to your delivery requirements.

For smaller loads our 1.5Te capacity sprinter van offers the perfect solution, whilst for more difficult loads we're ideally equipped to provide flexible loading and distribution solutions utilising our range of crane mounted vehicles & lorry loaders.  With front and rear mounted rigid and articulated vehicles offering lifting capacities ranging from 9 Tonne/Metre to 205 Tonne/Metre (the largest in the UK), operated by our ALLMI (Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers) Certified Drivers, we can quickly and efficiently undertake lifting and positioning tasks without the need for hiring mobile cranes. 

All our vehicles are equipped with satellite tracking systems and digital communications providing our Traffic Office and our customers with real-time and historical travel information.  This tracking ensures that we can follow the entire journey of your cargo from collection, through transport and distribution to final delivery providing up to date progress information and an accurate time of arrival. 

The expertise, experience and equipment across Collett's general haulage operations allows us to provide a complete transport solution offering a 24/7 operation, dedicated and timed deliveries, including UK express delivery as well as groupage facilities for full or part loads, warehousing facilities & outdoor storage, stock control and order picking.
